Fig. 2: Net environmental-social-economic virtual flows of the intra-APAC trade in 2015.

From: Environmental-social-economic footprints of consumption and trade in the Asia-Pacific region

Fig. 2

The top five net flows are shown for each footprint indicator, and fall into three panels a natural resource, b local and global environmental threats, c socio-economic effects. The width of the arrows in each panel represents the magnitude of the net flow within the APAC region. The background colors indicate the specific net footprint (import-export) per capita of each region/country. The negative net footprint indicates net displacements (of resource use, emissions, labors, and economic value added) to other APAC countries/regions. Note, the background color and flows of Taiwan, China could not be shown on the map.
